Although I do love the Cali dial... the OEM Strap sucks and Panerai should cutback on the faux patina.

Nice :thumbsup:

Luke, the 448 is ultra hot. :cheers:
People are going to start paying a premium for PAMs without faux patina.

My feelings about what to do or not are constantly changing, but I keep coming back to the idea of flipping my orange PO and looking for a yellow-dialed Seawolf. Later today, though, I'll probably have a different plan :shrug: :scratch: I'd still also like a 14060

The 448 and 449, nice!
Since these are 'neo-vintage' isn't the vintage lume appropriate?
And where'd those bronze dive guys come from?

Thanks! Unfortunately, I don't have the discretionary resources to just add to the collection. Instead I'm in and out of watches, which by its own right, ok since I get to enjoy various watches. On the other hand though, I miss some of the pieces that I had to let go.

As for the faux-patina... it is rather subtle on the 449/ However, given the size of the dial and the amount of lume needed to cover the indices on the 448, the faux-patina is a bit overwhelming. I much prefer the PAM249 Cali dial.

If it's a good year Zenith Pilot Doublematic.
Love the pilot doublematic. Awesome awesome watch, but I think its just too big for me :(
